Mont I'tiwerful Agency in Co-operation
With tli Church Addrefmeg by Ir.
BJrnie, President Lowrey and Oth
ers Enrly History of Organization
The annual service of the V. M
C. A. was held last night in Cen
tral Union church.
After the address of welcome by
F. J. Lowrey, .the new president,
D. W. Corbett, general secretary of
the Association, made the twenty
sixth annual report of the board
of directors, from which the follow
ing are extracts :
The time has come to make a record
A the work accomplished ami account
for the stewardship entrusted to the
Honolulu Young Men's Christian
Association during the past year.
The rooms of the Association are
open daily from 8 a. m. to 9:30 p. m
The daily average attendance at our
reading room numbers 160. Our room
is supplied with the best reading
material procurable, and is constantly
in use. One hundred and sixty-seven
volumes have been added to the
library shelves during the year. The
total Dumber of books in circulation
during the vear numbers 549. This is
a large circulation, considering the
material we have at hand, some 1000
volumes in all.
The educational work of the Asso
ciation continues to occupy an im
portant place in the year's programme.
The enrollment of students in October
was not so large as in the previous
vear. The bookkeeping class has
twenty-one students. Mr. William
Harris has charge of the work and
has proven a painstaking and careful
instructor. Shorthand has had nine
teen pupils, and typewriting twelve.
When the additions to our preeut
building are completed, better facili
ties will be at our disposal for this de
partment. The principal social gathering of the
year was the New Year's reception to
the young men of the city. We were
assisted in this recaption by the ladies
of the W. C. T. U. and Y's. About
two hundred participated in the din
ner. The evening concert was at
tended by about four hundred people,
and was one of the best ever given in
oar hall. Three concerts and recep
tions were given to the sailors of the
war vessels in port, and were much
enjoyed by the men. A number of
temperance concerts have been held
and attended by large audiences. Our
lecturers on the temperance subject
included Dr. Hutchins, Chief Justice
Judd, Rev. H. W. Peck, C. B. Ripley
The Sunday evening prayer and
praise service continues with profit to
very many of our members, and holds
a prominent place in the work of the
association. The Bible class work is
not so strong as it was a year ago.
This may be accounted for by the fact
of other classes started in the city, as
also the large number of young men
engaged in week night drill in the
military companies. The Bethel Hall
missson, continued by the Association
for many years, was abaudoued, but
not until the field was amply covered
by the entrance of the Salvation
Army, who are accomplishiug a toble
work for this class of men. The work
outside the building has included the
Sunday service at the goal, by Messrs.
Walter C. Weedon and George P. Cas
tie, who have labored faithfully and
well. The hospital and visitation
work has been attended to by Mr.
Frauk Cooke and committee. The
work of this committee has brought
omfort and good cheer to many lives.
Young men who are sick, iu boarding
houses or at home, are visited by the
members whenever their name are
known to us.
Mr. Hiram Purdy has been the
faithful center of the work to sailing
vessels iu port. Each Sabbath morn
ing the vessels are visited and reading
material, consisting of magazines,
newspapers and tracts are leit. Two
hundred and eight applicants for
employment have handed their
names to be entered on the register
for work. All have been counselled
to the best of the secretary's ability
and situations found for thirty-eight.
The membership numbers 2S3, a
gain ot nine for the year. We have
to record the names of the following
members and subscribers who have
died during the year:
E. C. Damon. Died June 4, 1894.
S. N. Castle. Died July 14, 1894.
Heury Dimond. Died January 3,
Charles L. Carter. Shot at Wai
kiki, January 6, 1895.
Captain Kibliug. Died March 10,
This lint forms a silent appeal to
every member for more earn
est and faithful service in the days
that are left. "For our life is but a
shadow that appereth for a little
while and then vauisheth away."
C. B. Ripley, the retiring presi
dent, presented a paper entitled
"Past, Present and Future of the
Young Men's Christian Associa
tion." He spoke in part, as follows :
A little more than fifty years ago,
in the great city of London, two
young men began their life work;
one, an open air preacher, spoke daily
iu different parts of the city, and by
his earnest, uneonventioual method,
the preacher Booth drew to him the
nucleus of that vast army which to
day numbers more than two ami one
half millions of devoted, self-denying;
soldier-, and is one of the grandest or
ganizations on earth; uni ue iu its
religious methods, wonderful in the
zeal and devotion of its members, the
Salvation Army is doing a work for
fallen humanity, the value of which
can only be measured by Him who
knoweth all things.
Upon a different line of action, but
moved by the same spirit of love for
God and man, a low-salaried clerk in
a bi dry goods store began his work.
There was less of the sensational in
the methods of George Williams, the
founder of the Youug Meu's Christian
Association, but not less of zeal.
The Young Men's Christian Associa
tion is organized in fifty different
lands, and as manv different lan
guages spoken by its membership,
while in the historical library of the
American association at Springfield,
Mass., there are publications of vari
ous kinds relating to association work,
in twenty-five different languages. I
believe it to be a fact that the Young
Men's Christian Association is the
most perfectly organized institution
in the world, and more than any
other religious organization "is it the
center of special activities looking to
the advancement of the cause of
Christ and the promotion of the high
est interests of mankind," numbering
half a million of the most active,
earnest young men in the world a
a large part of them trained athletes.
From almost the first organization
or Young Men Christian Associations,
some form of educational work has
been carried on. It was only eighteen
months after the founder Williams
and his companions began their work
that measures were taken to win
young men by other than strictly re
The main object of the Young Men's
Cbristiau Association is to lead men
to Christ. That this fundamental
truth is never lost sight of in the
many-sided work carried forward is
evidenced by the success which has
attended the work in the half-century
just ended Young men by the
thousands have been led to a higher
life. More than five thousand young
men, representing forty denomina
tions, are now preparing for foreign
mission work under the Y. M. C. A.
banner. Their watchword is, "The
evangelization of the world in the
It Is a significant fact that there
was never a religious or semi religious
movement inaugurated which has
bad the support of business men of
all denominations, and of no denom
ination, that this has had. More than
one hundred railroad corporations in
the United States contribute to the
support of the Young Men's Christian
The association work in colleges is
remarkable, aud iu no department are
the results more gratifyiug. In 1877
there were but twenty-six college as
sociations in the United States. To
day there are fully five hundred, with
a membership of over thirty thous
and, and these figures do not include
colored or foreign college associa
tions. The speaker, in referring to the
future of the Y. M. C. A. called at
tention to its development from
year to year until at the present
time it stands as the most power
ful single agency in co-operation
with the church for the develop
ment of Christian civilization : to
its perfect organization local,
state, national and international,
and to the hundreds of thousands
of young men passing through its
membership yearly and coming
into prominence in business and
religious life, giving great promise
for the future.
Rev. Dr. Birnie made a short
address on the work of the Y. M.
C. A., saying that its object was to
make men out of tbose who were
willing to do their part. Among
other things he said : "To be a
man is to be like God. Build up
the body, build up the mind ; but
above all, build up the immortal
soul. Be a full grown man in the
power of God. No one can do this
but yourself. The Y. M. C. A. is
here to help you."
